Havana, May 2. The multiplication
of labor strikes demonstrates the quick
root American ideas are taking in Cuba.
A week or two ago the employes of the
United States railroads of Havana
struck for higher wages, but military
exigencies soon broke the tieup. In
Cienfuegos tha, stevedores quit work
and secured a higher rate of wages.
At all the piers except that used by
the quartermaster's department in Ha
vana there have been half a dozen mi
nor labor disturbances, which seem to
have culminated in two new strikes,
one by the longshoremen at the big
San Jose wharf and the other by the
employes of the Havana Water Works
company. In both cises the strikers
are holding out for a material increase

RETURN OF FIRST NEBRASKA.
Melkeljohn Says ReglmenCWUI Sail
Between May 25 and June lO.
Lincoln, May 2. In response to a tel
egram of Inquiry made by the World-
Herald to Assistant Secretary of War
Melkiejohn as to the time that the
First Nebraska is to start for home.
a reply was received from him stating
that "I have to advise you that the reg-
ment will sail from Manila between
the 25th prox. and June 10."
Thus allowing thirty-five days for
falling, five days for quarantine at San
Francisco and thirty days in camp
pending the final arrangements for tha
mustering out, makes It probable that
the First Nobraska will be out of the
army about the middle of August. In
the event that the regiment is returned
to Nebraska for muster out it means
that it will get here about the middle
Df July, but If retained at or near th
seaport, as was the Third Nebra&ka, II
will be near August 15 before the boyi
When the regiment is mustered out
each of the men will receive sixty days'
pay in advance, that amount being now
illowed for soldiers who left tn United
States. This, with the month's pay
then accrued, will make the salary due- i
:o each enlisted man range from Jib.SC
'.or a private to $90 for a first sergeant,
nd if mustered out at San Francisco
t means travel pay for nearly 100 aays,
3T one day's pay and commutation ol
rations for each twenty miles. This
would then add from $77 to $125 to each
ma's pay In preference to being muster
ad out in Nebraska.

Colonel Funston sent Corporal Fer

Colonel Funston then decided to lead
120 men across the river a mile to the
westward and enfilade the insurgents.
His purpose was to surprise and rout
them. Eight companies of Kansas vol-
unteers furnished the detail. The march
was down the river bank. But it was

At 10 o'ekk this morning Colonel
Funston determined to endeavor tu

men he went to a point on the river sev.

where two privates, White and Trem-

rope to a portion of the insurgent
rench. In the meantime the remalndei
of the detachment kept up a vigorou
fire, which was directed toward the in
surgent trenches, while the artlllerr
maintained a tremendous bombardment
White and Trembly were thus partly
protected from the Insurgents' fire. Sev
eral Insurgents were in the trench at
the point where the men landed, but
they were terror-stricken and fled when
the two Americans began yelling.
RAFTS CARRY THEM ACROSS.
Colonel Funston then sent two men
In a boat across the river, with the
clothes and rifles of White and Trem

men swam ashore, losing all the con

Philadelphia, Pa.. May I. Former
United States District Attorney Ellery
P. Ingham and Harvey K. Newitt, who
waa Ingham'a assistant, were arraigned
before United Statea Commissioner Ed
munds on the charge of attempting to
bribe Secret Service Operative Wil
liam J. McManua In connection with
the Jacobs-Kendig-Taylor-Bredell rev
enue stamp counterfeiting conspiracy.
The bearing took place in the ' United
States circuit court room.
William L. Kendig, the Lancaster to
bacco manufacturer, waa the first wit
ness. He identified Mr, Ingham and
aald he first met him January 31. At
that time witness said that he (witness)
waa making counterfeit stampa of the
denomination of fifty cigars. William
M. Jacoba, he aald, waa associated with
him In this business. He said also that
Arthur Taylor had engraved the plate
with the assistance of Baldwin S. Bre
dell. Kendig said on the occasion of
his first visit to Mr. Ingham's office
he had questioned Mr. Ingham regard
ing the latter's acquaintance with Se
cret Service Operatives Burns and Me
Manus, asking the lawyer whether or
not he thought they were corrupt or
corruptible. Ingham, witness said, de
manded a retainer and received $j0.
Kendig then detailed to Ingham, a he
said, the whole story of the bogus reve
nue stamps and also Informed him that
he and Jacobs were In possession of the
"Monroe head" $100 counterfeit silver
Witness Bald he told Ingham that he
believed the secret service agents were
after him and Jacobs, and he wanted
to find some way of forestalling them,
even to paying the agents a certain
sum for two years if necessary.
INGHAM ASKS FOR TIME.
Ingham asked for time to consider the
case. He told the witness that he
knew a boy who was a "natural born
sneak" and would employ him to learn
if the story witness told him was true
Kendig gave him $15 for the boy's ex
penses. About February 2 wilnese
again saw Ingham and he asked foi
$j00 as an additional fee. Witness gave
him $250 on account and money for the
boy's expenses. On February 11 Jacob!
accompanied Kendig to Mr. Ingham'!
office. Jacobs asked Ingham If he real
ly believed Burns and McManus were
corrupt. He thought McManus whh.
Ingham had previously mentioned a
Richard J. Lennon, an ex-pollce mag
istrate, as being likely to approach Mc
Manus. Four days later Ingham told
witness his plan for reaching McManus
n ronsisiea or taxing mm to the I nlun
league, treating hirn to a dinner and
wine so the secret service man might
be made communicative. He asked the
witness what amount of money he
could pay if the secret service me
were held off fur a year. Witness said
he and Jacobs could contribute about
$3,000 a month.
On a later occasion. February 18, Mr.
Ingham informed KendSg that he had a
friend who would approach McManus,
but he must have i'M in advance and
$M0 immediately after he had com
pleted his work. Kendig paid Ingham
1600 for this unknown man.
Up to that time Harvey K. Newitt
had not been known In the case. Judge
Butler had resigned from the bench ol
the United States court and Kendig in
quired of Mr. Ingham who was likely
to be his successor. Ingham answer
ed that Newitt, his law partner, was a
Witness further testified that he was
summoned to Mr. Ingham's residence
on February 26. Ingham then told him
that hia man. who was designated as
No. 3, had met McManus, but nothing
had been accomplished. On March 7
Kendig waa Informed by Mr. Ingham
that No. 2 had seen Agent McManus
The witness aald he had learned that
the secret service was Investigating
from Samuel B. Downey, at that time
deputy Internal revenue collector at
Lancaster, and that he so told Mr. Ing
ham. PAYMENTS TO INGHAM.
Ingham, he said, told him that Mc
Manus wanted $500 a month, but that
Burns wanted $1,000. Then Ingham and
No. 3 would require $500 a month each.
For this Jacobs and Kendig were guar
anteed immunity from Interference for
the thirty days succeeding each pay
ment On that day witness paid into
Ingham's hands $2,400
The next payment, he said, was made
to Ingham on March 11 and was $1,100.
Ingham had been told that Deputy Col
lector Downey had been bribed and
that there need be no fear from tha
Lancaster end. On the 9th of April
witness made another payment of $3,004
to Ingham and Kendig waa told that
$2.00 would be paid to McManua and
Burns on the following day. Kendig at
thla time demanded the name of the
unknown gobetween designated aa "No
I," but Ingham declined to disclose hli
Identity. He aald, however, that Ken
dig would be protected In the event of
anything happening to him (Ingham).
He told Kendig that he would write a
letter to Mra. Ingham, hia wife, explain.
,lng that on a certain date of each
month "No. 8" and a man named Ken
dig would call at his house with a
package of money, which waa to be di
vided. Hia share, of which hia wife
'would be Informed, was $600. The hear
ing waa then adjourned.
